Yep - it's here! Jade's Cowboy Crush is now on Amazon for just $3.99.
I have to say, this was a seriously fun write for me! Grueling at times, yes, but enjoyable all the same. I loved discovering just what made rebellious cowboy, Gavin Emerson,
tick. I enjoyed learning about the demons from his past, and writing
about how he conquers them in the end. Above that, I absolutely love
Jade and her admirable devotion to being a good mother at all costs.
Even still, with everything that takes place in Jade's Cowboy Crush, I
love their romance most of all!
Here's a tasty excerpt, along with the book blurb:

finger over her arm, Jade wanted something more than a simple night's

bed slightly creaking beneath his weight. Her heart skipped at least two
beats while she waited, working to keep her breaths slow and even. It
wasn't until she felt his warm breath on her face that she realized just
how close he'd gotten. Did he plan to kiss her in her sleep? Like
The idea caused a sudden streak of tingling anticipation to skitter
over her flesh. If his lips touched hers, would she kiss him back? She
imagined wrapping her hand around the back of his neck, indulging in the
Suddenly it seemed as if her heart was working to make up for the
lost beats - pounding in excess to a near painful degree. Please, Gavin,
she pled inwardly. Please just kiss me.
Without a conscious thought, she let her lips part slightly. Gavin's
warm breath met hers, the seductive sensation causing Jade to silently
grip fistfuls of the sheets at her sides.

On another note - the holidays are just about here. Who plans to get some reading done over the break? I just finished Midnight Masquerade, by Marcia Lynn McClure (and LOVED IT, by the way), and will be choosing from my to-read list for the break. What will you be reading? Or have you just finished a book you really enjoyed?
